Many businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one every Tuesday on Seattle Astronomy.
This week’s Astro Biz is Alpha Centauri Imperial IPA from Hop Valley Brewing Company in Eugene, Oregon. The company also brews Proxima IPA, as well as a variety of other beers and ales that do not have astronomy names. The company’s focus is on Oregon hops.
We chose Alpha Centauri this week because we just spotted it while strolling through the beverage aisle of our favorite supermarket. Plus it had been nearly a month since we featured a beery Astro Biz.
